Speeding Offences: Totting Up Ban

Speeding, and other serious motoring offences, often come with penalty points, which if they accumulate to 12 or more in a 3-year-period, could lead to a totting up ban. You could get disqualified for a minimum of six months by the Magistrates court. Any time you get caught speeding, you are at risk of having the court endorse penalty points on your driving licence. These speeding points on a licence could get you disqualified from driving if they accumulate.

You should, therefore, be careful, not to receive multiple speeding offences. If this has been the case, and you believe there are mitigating circumstances, it is very important that you get reliable speeding solicitors who can represent you in motoring court and request the court not to endorse some of the penalty points on your licence.

Caddick Davies Solicitors are among the top motoring legal experts operating throughout the UK. We specialise in motoring law, with our legal experts being highly qualified and having vast experience in speeding offences charges thanks to the thousands of clients we have assisted across England and Wales.

We understand that the legal system governing motoring law can be complex. We, therefore, take care not to bombard you with legal jargon you might not be familiar with, but instead offer the key information about your legal options. Please note that a totting up ban is set to track and disqualify motorists who repeat their offences, which is why we advise all motorist to take care not to repeat such speeding offences in a short space of time, since the build-up of the penalty points can have these serious impacts.

How long does a totting up driving ban last?

The duration of any possible driving disqualification is obviously of great concern to many drivers facing a possible totting up ban. This is natural, since many drivers depend so much on their driving, both personally and professionally. A 6-month mandatory period of disqualification is imposed on any driver with a driving licence that has accumulated 12 or more penalty points. This, however, is determined by the presence of previous disqualification(s) you may have had in the past. A driving ban lasts, depending on the offences and penalties you have received, as follows:

  • 6 months for getting 12 or more penalty points in a 3-year period
  • 12 months if you get a second disqualification in 3 years
  • 2 years for those who get a third disqualification within 3 years

There are possible advantages of having no previous disqualifications, as with the right legal help, you may be able to negotiate a ban of less than 6 months. This, of course, is determined by the degree of your speeding offences, on top of other considerations the court makes.
